May We Interest You in Embroidery?


May flowers are finally here and this Mother's Day you can give her flowers that will last. Our Embroidered Silk Shawls are the perfect gift for luxury lovers and art appreciators.

A centuries-old technique, embroidery is again having a major moment and we're here for it. Artifacts of this craft can be dated back to the 5th-3rd Century B.C in China, and embroidery's cross-cultural significance is undeniable. Examples can also be found globally in the traditions of present-day Eastern Europe, Scandinavia, Asia, North Africa, the Middle East and South America, with applications ranging from the Imperial to the quotidian.
